WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement on President Trump's 2018 budget blueprint:

“I welcome the president’s blueprint for next year’s budget, which turns the page from the last eight years. We are determined to work with the administration to shrink the size of government, grow our economy, secure our borders, and ensure our troops have the tools necessary to complete their missions. I look forward to reviewing this with the Appropriations Committee and our entire conference.”
